The Golden Peacock in Macau: Indian food at its best

By on August 9, 2015

Nothing is guaranteed in Macau! Many have won and lost millions in the city, however The Golden Peacock in Macau is a win all the way. The Venetian’s ‘One Michelin-starred’ restaurant is extremely popular amongst many Indians and loved by non-Indian travelers from across the globe. The two-storied restaurant is beautifully designed in the same grandeur of the Venetian, with a touch of chic fusion.

The authenticity of any dish lies in it’s simplicity and that’s exactly what Chef Justin Paul and his hard-working team strives towards. All the dishes from the a la carte menu are presented in an extremely unique manner with interesting additions.

If you end up going there during the afternoon, do not forget to try their great-value-for-money lunch buffet, priced at MOP/HKD 158+10% for adults and MOP/HKD 79+10% for children (3 to 12Yrs). The buffet includes an excellent spread of salads, soups, kebabs, curries, rice, breads and dessert. The Curd Rice, Corn Salad and Tandoori Zeera Chicken stood out the most.

Eggplant or aubergine (baigan) is a very popular vegetable used in Indian food with many different ways of preparing it. A dish which stood out was the exceptional Badal-e-Jaam – a thinly sliced baked eggplant with homemade yoghurt, sour cream, topped with almond flakes and perfectly blended with spices. For people who love to experiment and try something new, this one is quite a treat.

The naans at The Golden Peacock have some uncommon options of toppings which include the sun dried tomato & chili naan and the pistachio naan.

North Indian food (for non-vegetarians) cannot be complete without a lamb dish.  The meat used in the Kashmiri Rogan Josh is really good quality (unlike many Indian restaurants in Macau and HK); not only is it tender but it is rich in taste as well.

Michelin starred or not, The Golden Peacock stands out as an Indian restaurant which is really pushing the boundaries of quality and authenticity in the whole region and not just in Macau.
